War and Peace Studies: War and War Prevention. World Order. Preliminary Edition, 1974-75. History and Social Science Resource Bulletin.
A central purpose of this curriculum resource is to help students at the secondary level gain mental images, concepts, vocabulary, and learning skills they can use to comprehend the rather vast idea of world order and gain a world perspective on contemporary affairs. Emphasis is on presenting learning experiences designed to arouse controversy, generate questioning attitudes, and challenge young people to think critically about important global concerns of their generation and the future. The teaching strategies, activities, and audiovisual and print materials emphasize direct student participation and involvement on both affective and cognitive levels. The resource bulletin contains a course of study, suggested readings and audiovisual materials for instruction, and suggested references for further information on war and peace studies, as well as address lists of resource organizations and materials vendors. The course outline is organized around the major themes of war, war prevention, and world order and is amplified with several broad questions and many subquestions for inquiry under each theme.
